Yes, I Do

I will usually respond in kind to the person I am hugging.  Most times if its males, they tend to be more forceful and bodyconforming, but brief, depending on whether or not he is attracted to me.  Females, tend to be a more kind, delicate embrace and longer especially if she is a dear friend.  Children receive the most special hugs it's usually to pick up their spirit, or heal a boo boo, and at that time I am their hero.   But, self hugs are important too.  :)

Yes, self hugs - the most important of all for many of us who undervalue ourselves. Hugs from others can be the best and yes, there are many different kinds of them. I like the way you described them!
